On November 2, the firm proudly hosted 30 grade nine students from various GTA schools as part of the Take Our Kids to Work™ day program. This annual national program developed through The Learning Partnership allows for grade nine students to be hosted by parents, relatives and volunteers at their workplaces.
Parents and hosts were invited to join events with the opportunity to provide job shadowing for their respective students. Following breakfast, students started the day getting acquainted with each other by playing jeopardy. Throughout the day, the students learned about the wide range of positions within a law firm and what the daily life of a lawyer is like. The day included a presentation by the International Human Rights Program at University of Toronto and featured a tour of our firm.
Torys is proud to support this initiative every year and we thank all those who were able to join us!
